"We booked Velvet Shadows for my parents' 40th wedding anniversary, and they truly made the celebration unforgettable. From the very beginning, communication with Dave was great. He was responsive, accommodating and made the planning process smooth and stress-free. On the day of the event, they delivered an outstanding performance. Their music was brilliant, capturing the perfect blend of classics and contemporary hits that had everyone on the dance floor. The guests were very complimentary about the band and were even demanding more songs after their set had finished! I highly recommend Velvet Shadows. They truly went above and beyond to make our celebration memorable - thank you all!!! Thanks, Dave."

"Hired the band for my wife’s 40th and what a night!! Everyone danced all night and between sets was an unmanned disco. Everyone loved them. Easy to deal with at all times. Book this band - you won’t regret it!"

"We booked Velvet Shadows for our wedding evening. All members of the band are talented musicians and their singer Maria has a fantastic voice! They adapted their playlist to suit our requests and performed our first dance to perfection. The dance floor was kept busy with their wide range of songs they expertly played. The band made sure the sound levels were suitable for us and our guests.
All band members were very friendly and dressed very smartly. The booking process was easy to follow and David was very helpful with helping us plan the music for our wedding evening."
